Thanksgiving is very important in our understanding and our growth with God, and we’re going to call our teaching today ‘Thanksgiving Is Vital For The Overcomer’. We’ll open up with a few scriptures first just to remind ourselves of why this is so important – firstly we’re going to look at Psalm 92 verses 1 – 2:
92 It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
Let’s also look to Psalm 107
107 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever….
From cover to cover in the Word of God we are encouraged to give thanks. There is actually a good reason why we are to be thankful and I’m going to open this up this morning -I trust that you will be blessed by this – to have this heart and spirit about you – to always declare your thanks and praise to God because this is very powerful to a dying world outside.
Sadly there are too many Christians who are depressed and oppressed and who reveal anything but a thankful heart – a heart full of joy before the Lord.
O that men would praise the Lord for His goodness
Over and over again Scripture exhorts us to be mindful of these things:
8 But You, Lord, are on high forevermore.
9 For behold, Your enemies, O Lord,
For behold, Your enemies shall perish;
All the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
We start to get understanding that being thankful and praising God is very powerful against the enemy – against the powers of darkness who are all the while trying to war against us – trying to get us to retract and to compromise ….
